depaulu The NFL Draft Town fan festival kicked off yesterday in Grant Park, just a few blocks away from our Loop Campus. While we were checking it out, we saw Da Coach hovering around the Lombardi Trophy. The event is free, and the Trib has a good guide at http://ow.ly/4ndt2n

depaulu Marketing influences everything—from the laundry detergent you buy to the trips to you take to the type of exercise routine you choose. So it should come as no surprise that marketing also influences your voting practices.

In his talk at Alumni University, Professor Bruce Newman discussed the sophisticated use of marketing in politics and how its lessons and applications can be leveraged across other industries. “Marketing is all about knowing what the future holds for organizations of all types, and without that insight, it is difficult to succeed in business,” Bruce explains. It’s one of the ways DePaul is always seeking to infuse real-world perspectives into our curriculum and educational experience.

But the impact marketing has on society isn’t the only wisdom Bruce seeks to impart upon his students. He also lives his life by a simple, yet powerful idea: Pay attention to the moments.

This is a lesson he learned as a student himself through a chance encounter with an unlikely friend—a homeless man who once asked for his help buying a healthy meal. “He pulled out a large button from his pocket and gave it to me to keep,” Bruce explains. The button read, “New horizons, every 24 hours.” “I never forgot the power of that button,” Bruce explains, “which represented the life he led, but also made me realize that it is the moments in life that really do matter.” #DePaulWorldReady #Education #DePaul #Marketing #Business #Driehaus #LifeLessons

depaulu “At every other institution you always hear that there is help if you seek it. The thing I love the most about DePaul is that everyone you meet already has their hand out, ready to help you,” say Yara Ismail.

On Jan. 19, it was DePaul’s president—the Rev. Dennis H. Holtschneider, C.M.—offering her a helping hand. The sophomore was anxiously awaiting the moment she would give her winning speech at DePaul’s 2016 Martin Luther King Jr. Day prayer breakfast. “Father Holtschneider turned to me and told me that I was in a room full of people who wanted me to succeed,” Ismail said. “I think that is what DePaul is about.” “DePaul provides endless resources and spaces for important conversations to take place,” she says. “I have learned how to facilitate the important conversations and how to lead in a socially responsible way.” Follow the link in our bio to read her speech.

depaulu A round of applause for @depauldeca who brought home 65 awards from the DECA International Career Development Conference! A team of 24 students represented DePaul at the conference, and members participated in competitive events where they demonstrated career knowledge and skills in the areas of business management and administration, finance and accounting, marketing and communications, entrepreneurship, and hospitality and tourism.
Among the highlights: first place in emerging technology marketing strategies, second place in financial statement analysis, and third place in business-to-business marketing. DePaul’s chapter was also recognized for its community service and leadership. http://ow.ly/4n5mrk

depaulu It’s no secret that the educational experiences at DePaul are wide-ranging and experiential. This week, we’re highlighting some of the stories from our professors who are participating in Alumni University. Up first is Associate Professor Daniel Makagon.

Daniel will be teaching “Sonic Storytelling” at Alumni University, which shows students how to document sounds and interviews to tell stories. “Students get lost in the sounds and are often hooked on this approach to sharing stories about contemporary life,” he says. Because of this positive response, he wants to provide alumni with the opportunity to experience this process and discuss how sound can engage people in unique ways.

Daniel approaches teaching—and his role in preparing students for life after graduation—with three goals in mind. First, he tries to instill a love of learning. “Curiosity is the most important thing to being a good student, a good employee, a good family member and a good member of public life,” he says.

Second, he teaches students how to apply course content to the work that matters to them most. Finally, he encourages students to think about what makes them unique and how the course content can expand their horizons. He hopes that his students will understand how all of their coursework fits together and impacts their lives both inside and outside of the classroom—and eventually, inside and outside of their careers. #DePaulWorldReady #DePaulUniversity #Faculty #Education #AlumniUniversity @depaulalumni
